Meet The Manager

Una Court is General Manager at Northbourne Court.

At Northbourne Court we work to create a welcoming atmosphere in which residents enjoy activities, go on outings and make friends with other residents and staff. At the heart of our home is our Philosophy of Care, the Eden Alternative, where staff encourage social interaction, engagement and work towards the eradication of loneliness and boredom.

24-hour care and support is provided for people living with dementia, where our team of qualified and attentive staff focus on the individual needs of the residents.

The modern design provides well equipped, bright en-suite bedrooms to support person centred care. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms and if they wish, to bring any small items of furniture from home.

Northbourne Court has a beauty salon which is a perfect place for a little pampering and relaxation. Also located at Northbourne Court is The Christie Day Care Centre, providing a safe, bright, relaxing and calm atmosphere for people living with dementia. Other facilities include the Piazza bar and cafe, providing a meeting place to enjoy a drink or a light lunch with family and friends.

Residents can visit the pretty courtyard gardens to while away a peaceful afternoon, or join in with the daily programme of activities. The minibus also gives residents the opportunity for day trips out to one of the many local places of interest.

The home provides a safe, warm and friendly environment with support for daily support such as washing, cleaning and laundry. Northbourne Court delivers a respite care service allowing a crucial break for carers, for just a few hours or for several weeks. This offers family carers the chance to go on holiday or simply have some well-earned time off.

Autumna has invited care providers to evidence the infection control measures they are carrying out, above and beyond those laid out by the government, in order to keep residents, staff and visitors safe.

Safe Visiting Space
safe-tick We have a safe visiting space

In December 2020 Avante Care & Support proudly launched their new visitor cabins across all 10 of their care homes across Kent, Bexley and Greenwich, so that residents can meet safely with family members despite the coronavirus outbreak. This has meant families are able to keep in contact with loved ones until actual physical contact is possible once again. 

Fitted out with comfortable chairs and decorated with pictures, the cabins will support families to visit loved ones in a safe and welcoming environment. The cabins have separate entrances for the resident and visitor and all furniture and the inside of the structure is thoroughly cleaned after each visit.

When the new visitor cabins opened in December families were keen to make use of the new visiting facility and immediately booked visiting times to see their loved ones. The cabins have been warmly welcomed by everyone and staff have been inundated with positive messages and feedback about the new visiting facilities.

Connectivity for resident testing, monitoring & communications

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Our catering team is on hand every day to ensure that the nutritional requirements of all our residents are met, with all special diets catered for. Our chefs come and meet all our residents to discuss meal choices, likes and dislikes

Sharing meal times with others can provide structure to the day and increase the enjoyment of food. The impact of good nutrition on the health of our brains cannot be dismissed; our brains need nutrients to work and remain healthy.  Eating well is vital to maintain the health, independence and wellbeing of people with dementia

The way food is presented and served, the surroundings and the company in which it is eaten all add to the satisfaction and enjoyment of eating a meal. This is equally important for a person with dementia: a good mealtime experience can have a positive impact on their health and sense of wellbeing.
